This 40 year-old fire station was rehabilitated to meet the current and future needs of a growing community. The project involved building three additions and renovating the remaining existing station. The rehabilitation updated the aging facility to meet the service capability and technical standards required by the Brampton Fire & Emergency Services (BFES) as well as the barrier-free design and energy conservation requirements of the current building code. The renovation completely renewed the dayroom, dormitory and apparatus bay and created new medical storage, a clean room, universal washroom and mechanical and electrical rooms. The additions provided new spaces for the fire suppression crew, fire prevention officers and radio communication officers, new washrooms, locker rooms, fitness room, bunker gear storage, outdoor storage apparatus bay and hose tower. The existing apparatus bays were converted into drive-thru bays to match the new apparatus bay. The two and a half acre site was re-designed to accommodate the expanded building and parking lot, new garbage bin enclosure, emergency generator and outdoor patio. The size and dimensions of the paved area were governed by the space required for maneuvering the firefighting vehicles and garbage truck. A new driveway was added allowing fire trucks to drive-through the apparatus bays.
The mechanical and electrical systems of the existing building were replaced completely. The building envelope of the existing building was upgraded to meet the building code standards. The project was designed to target a minimum LEED® Silver status under the LEED® Canada New Construction Major Renovation 2009 Rating System.
